Layers of the Atmosphere Project Due: (Friday 9/21) At home as well as in class you will be researching and learning about the 4 layers of our atmosphere. You will be responsible for demonstrating your knowledge by completing the Layers of the Atmosphere Project. Part 1: Diagram. You will create a diagram of Earth’s atmosphere by drawing and labeling each layer (this does not need to be to scale). These are the things that must be included in your drawing to receive full credit: The elevations of each layer (the height where each layer begins and ends) The range of temperature in each layer Air pressure and density of air in each layer 3 unique characteristic of each layer (these can be drawings). For example: planes fly only in the examplesphere Part 2: Learning aid. You will create a learning aid to represent one specific layer, or all layers, of the atmosphere. This could be a song you write, a poster, a 3D model, or whatever else your clever mind can devise. The main focus of the learning aid is to present information clearly in a creative, organized fashion.These are the things that I’m looking for in your learning aid: It displays a complete and accurate understanding of the chosen layer or layers The learning aid should be creative and interesting Your creative learning aid should be neat. You should not have any mistakes on the aid. Part 3: Follow up Questions. The last requirement of your project is to answer a series of follow up questions to check for your understanding of the 4 layers. Questions and answers need to be written or typed on a separate sheet of paper and should help guide your research. Those questions are: The Jet Stream is at the top of this Which layer is closest to the earth? Which later has rain clouds? layer? We live in what layer? Propeller aircraft and commercial What layer has the coldest jets fly in what layer? temperatures? Meteors generally burn up in what Which layer are the space station layer? and space shuttles in? The ozone layer is found in what How is the stratosphere heated? layer? Which layer has the hottest Describe the temperature change temperatures? in each layer as the altitude Which layer contains half of increases (answer with increases Earth’s atmosphere? or decreases).
